Pet behavior library

We want to help solve pet behavior problems!

Sometimes pet behavior problems seem overwhelming, but many can be managed with the application of a little knowledge and a little effort. Keeping pets in their homes in a manner that's comfortable for both pet and owner is one of our many goals at the Animal Humane Society.

This online library contains tried-and-true methods for managing many common pet behavior problems as well as tools for evaluating situations that may require additional resources. Please browse the list of titles below and study the information that's relevant to your particular situation. Try the solutions that are offered.

If your problem persists, please call our Behavior Helpline at (763)489-2202 and leave a message for our behavior helpline counselors.

By keeping pets and owners together, this online library and the Behavior Helpline assist the Animal Humane Society in carrying out its mission to reinforce the human-animal bond and reduce the number of surrendered animals. Materials can be mailed to people who don't have access to a computer.
